The reverse image by Claude Thivierge is a one-on-one encounter with Alces alces in an idyllic setting. Partially shrouded in a blanket of morning mist, the forest basks in the golden glow of sunrise. A bull moose stands in the water near the grass-lined edge, where it quietly feeds on aquatic plants. Presented in a three-quarter view, the moose has turned its head towards the viewer, which brings its rack of antlers into full view. The reverse includes the engraved word “CANADA” and the year “2019”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The reverse features an outstanding amount of engraved details that make this a veritable piece of art.
To spy a moose in the wild is to catch a glimpse of Canada’s untamed spirit. This gentle giant of the forest is a powerful, solitary creature that may be found in nearly every province and territory. Often seen near lakes and muskegs, the moose’s imposing size makes for an unforgettable wildlife encounter—one that is forever preserved on this prestigious collectible.
